Until fairly recently, I had thought of anger and rage as being on a continuum; I believed they were different shades of the same emotion. I then had a life experience that triggered what I now know to be rage. I experienced this as an extreme and primitive emotion, which was way beyond any angry feelings I had ever experienced before. Underlying this rage was a terror of not being able to cope alone.
Whether we’ve experienced small setbacks or major traumas, we are all influenced by past experiences we may not remember or don’t fully understand.
In Getting Past Your Past, Francine Shapiro explains how our personalities develop and how we become trapped into feeling, believing and acting in ways that don’t serve us. Through detailed examples and exercises readers will learn to understand themselves, and why the people in their lives act the way they do and will learn techniques to improve their relationships, break through emotional barriers and overcome limitations.
Using a conversational style, humour and fascinating real life stories, Shapiro makes it easy to understand how unprocessed memories can keep us stuck and what we can do about it.
If you carry negative beliefs such as “I’m not good enough” or “I’m not loveable”, which are holding you back, this book will help you to find the roots of these beliefs and establish more realistic ones.
